Internet, a tool for communication and exchange… which can come back into our lives like a boomerang! Irrespective of age, more and more Internet users are playing at, “Do you want to be my friend?” and “My friends friends are my friends”. Illustrated with photos and personal stories, our lives, loves and states of mind are posted and written down for everyone to see… forever. Employers and headhunters have been quick to see the benefit in collecting as much personal information as possible in their new recruitment processes.
How far can we keep control? Will we all be geo-located by tomorrow?
It’s the globalisation of our lives, that are spread out on the web. “Registered, filed, surveyed, tracked, oppressed…” there’s no shortage of terms to alert us to the dangers we’re courting and the impossibility of extricating ourselves from the web. From San Francisco to the cyber-cafés of Berlin and Paris, “My Life Exposed on the Internet” explores the world of social networks and questions the dangers inherent in a space that can be entered with just a click.
By tomorrow, every one of us will be tracked unless we abandon the Internet… if it’s not too late!
